Dr. Sangeeta Pant, CCEW Dean talks about essentials of being an educator at GGS College, Giddarbaha
Effective problem solving, analytic reasoning, collaborative decision making, intercultural competency, perspective taking, civic responsibility, creative leadership and e- recourses are just a few of the skills that reports have identified as being essential for a twenty-first-century teacher. Dr Sangeeta Pant, Dean, Chitkara College of Education for Women, was invited to deliver “Key Note Address” at a National Seminar on “Critical Issues for Tomorrow’s Teachers” organized by G.G.S College of Education for Women Giddarbaha, Punjab University, Chandigarh, where she delved on these essentials and more.
How does a teacher fit into this revolution in undergraduate education? What are the skills twenty-first-century teachers need to effectively impact student learning and to creatively address the great challenges facing children, families, and schools today? These were some of the questions Dr Pant addressed at the lecture.
She stated that the pillars of today’s global education scenario are inter-disciplinarity, mentored research, global experience, civic engagement, and depth of learning in one’s chosen major. Our challenge as teacher educators is to develop a set of courses and co-curricular experiences that add value to a foundation of liberal education.
